Tip: Avoid door hanging mistake

Always mark the "Top" and "Bottom" on a door so you won't make a mistake we've made - trimming down the wrong end. It's an easy mishap because you have to move it off its hinges and carry it to a work area and then plane down the surface. If you mark the door, there's less chance of cutting off the wrong end.
